Finally got around to playing Screamers v.2. Very sneaky marking it as 33 1/3, took me about 2 minutes of the first track to think, this would sound much better at 45rpm.

Paul you won't be surprised to learn that I listened to the whole thing at 33 1/3 and loved it  ;D

If you press 12s at 45 rather than 33 they sound better. So Iím told anyway.

Have I missed something here?

Do not vinyl recordings sound better at lower speeds on account of the Physics of ..........

Thats why I buy the digital and physical formats.

Cant go wrong.

IWTYAT Mixclub Disc December 2018

I've been listening to this mix all week and it keeps getting better with every listen, so here's my review of the IWTYAT mix. All of the tracks are seamlessly joined together.

1) A lovely track to open with and set the mood is "Sunshine On Leith" - The Proclaimers. Possibly their finest moment. That lulled me into a false sense of security, thinking, that identifying this mix would be a doddle. How wrong I was!
2) This has a modern soulful groove and quite relaxing too. It reminds me of Sade musically. The singer has an androgynous voice. No clue who he/she is.

3) Spacey electro-reggae, after hours, chill out vibe, based on the rhythm of Bob Marley's "So Much Trouble In The World." The guy that occasionally chants "sensimilla" sounds like the same guy on a Dub Syndicate track I know, which was produced by Adrian Sherwood. Did he produce this one? I like this a lot.

4) This would go down very well in a club (I think). An almost hypnotic trance beat. Reminds me a little of the rhythm from How Gee - "Black Machine". Sounds good to me.

5) "Check This Out"! We're dancing now! This sounds like what I imagine the ecstasy 'rave' experience would be like. I think I'll sit this one out  :o

6) Ah, this brings things down a little now. A trippy, funky, soul groove, with a nice bluesy/jazzy guitar sample. A relaxing vibe.

7) Continuing the relaxing vibe. Lovely female vocals. This is like futuristic soul from the soundtrack to a sci-fi movie. Rastaman Vibrations indeed! Reminds me of Morcheeba.

8) Still in the sci-fi movie soundtrack feel. Very nice bass playing. Relaxing mood.

9) At last I recognize a track! This is Nick Cave - "Red Right Hand". Nick's normally a bit too dark and gothic for me, but this well produced track fits right into the mix.

10) This one's very chilled out, like an after hours, comedown vibe. The kind of electro track that could go on for ages if you're in the mood. This feels good.

11) Nice acoustic guitar. We've left the club now! This is late night sitting 'round the campfire groove. I could take a lot of this. This is great.

12) More chill out. Lovely production with interesting lyrics. Very relaxing. Another winner.

13) I recognize another one! Dr John - "I Don't Wanna". His cover of John Martyn's song and he does a great job too. Lovely guitar playing with a bluesy/jazzy feel. John Martyn's lyrics resonate with me. Perfect for the mix.

14) This is a strange one! It is genre defying. Primitive and futuristic at the same time. Starts of with the rhythm giving a nod to "Give Peace A Chance" and develops into the kind of infectious tune Led Zeppelin would nail. Scottish female vocals, but no idea who the band is.

15) I'm on home turf now! A great track. Lovely melodic guitar. Sounds like a Scottish band. This is wonderful. I feel I should recognize this, but I don't.

16) Another lovely tune. Great production. Has a west coast, futuristic feel. I think this is Mercury Rev? I haven't heard them in a long time, but they sound better than ever.

17) This brings things down a notch. BIG atmospheric production. Lovely song. Walker Brothers influenced. This is very satisfying. Could be a Scottish band. Is it Goodbye Mr Mackenzie?

18) Nice touch fading out with the Proclaimers.

A well thought out mix. Great song selection. Nicely put together and it flows along smoothly . I reckon the mixer knows his way about the mixing desk and turntables. It gets better with every listen. The 'dance' track 5 wasn't quite my thing, but that apart, there were so many 'high' points. It's the kind of mix I would describe as 'experiential' and very enjoyable. Thank you DJ and once you reveal the mix, I'll certainly be checking out some of the artists.

I would like to spread some more Christmas cheer so like Kenny today I was inspired over my porridge and had to put pen to paper again!

LINO time

Lights around the hall
It's not long to go
Nights are getting darker
On this special day

New babes are born
It's LINO time
Gathering families
Here with their wine
This is LINO time our LINO time

Of course you could substitute LINO with the word Christmas if you want to make it more seasonal and I am sure Cliff wouldn't mind us using his tune he must send KC a Christmas card if Elton does!

Thank you  8) Much appreciated.
The EPs are a bit of an experiment, a new model I'm experimenting with, but also a plan with milestones that will force me to release some tracks.
Early releases of each EP should be regarded as 'beta' releases, they'll revise over time until I'm happy with the mixes.
For anyone that buys any revision of the EP, they'll automatically get the new mixes as each revision is made to the EP.
Hopefully by the end of this I'll be able to compile an album from the best bits.

p.s. If you'd like to obtain any EPs but avoid Bandcamp/Paypal, shoot me a message and we can sort else out.
